The Vermilion Parish Sheriff's Office is alerting residents to a rash of recent thefts.

According to KATC TV3, Vermilion Parish Sheriff Mike Couvillion says that a rash of burglaries has been targeting movables in that parish.

Riding mowers, side-by-sides, four-wheelers, and utility trailers are what have been taken the most, and Sheriff Couvillion is urging residents to be more proactive when storing these items.

Closing/locking barn/shed doors so that the items aren't visible, removing the keys, and even chaining the items to a sturdy object are just a few ways one can secure their property.

Sheriff Couvillion also cautions anyone who is purchasing one of these items from an individual, as being in possession of stolen property can be a crime. If someone offers to sell you any type of ATV, take note of the serial number and then contact authorities to see if that item has been reported stolen. Couvillion says that most of these types of vehicles should come with a title and a bill of sale.
